My grandma is 81 and suffered a stroke.   Shes in te rehab center.  She also suffers from Alzheimer's.  yesterday was a bad day.  she just doesnt know who anyone is and shes spitting and trying to bite the nurses.  she can hardly walk or use her right hand.  this is her second stroke in 9 years.  i also found out shes going into a nursing home.  she cant be released into my grandfathers home. hes 82 and has cancer , he cant care for her around the clock. 


ugh it sucks.

That's a lot. Alzheimer's is really a very sad disease. It's as though you are mourning their loss early because although they are still alive, who they are has already passed. It's a tough decision but a nursing home will give her the round the clock that she needs. Sorry you have to go through this, but you can take steps to make sure your kids don't have to go through this. Good luck Mama!
